Project management

At ProsessPilotene, we have project managers with extensive experience from most types of projects. We are happy to assist our customers with planning, implementing and finishing small and large projects.

MethodAlt text:

Our project managers have training from PMI, Prince2, Agile and Microsoft SureStep.

Generally we usually use Microsoft SureStep as a framework, since this is required by Microsoft for the way we run our business.

In most projects we use the agile project methodology, where we create deliveries iteratively with one-month time frames.

We use modern tools to support the project implementation, which foster positive collaboration in the project:

  1. Github.com is used for task management, test management, requirement specifications, and release management
  2. Skype for business is used for meetings
  3. TeamViewer is used for support
  4. And, depending on the client, Slack, Yammer or Gitter.im is used for dialogue.
  5. Minutes are recorded in a OneNote that is shared with the customer.

All projects start with a project basis for the project. The contents of this plan vary with project size. Whatever the size, the project basis will always contain an overall delivery plan/timetable for the project as well as rough estimates of the work to be performed by you as a customer and by ProsessPilotene.

For large projects, it is normal to extend the project basis with a resource plan, a project budget, and a template for project financial reporting.

The project basis is normally prepared by ProsessPilotene's consultants or project managers in a dialogue with our customers. This project basis is then included your order for us.

Example of project execution

The following is a typical project path. Regardless of the project path, we focus on creating integrated project teams where our employees work closely with your employees.

Large projects

By large projects, we mean projects of more than 500 man-hours provided by ProsessPilotene.

In these projects, we usually have a dedicated project manager who is not an executive project resource.

We require that a steering committee and a project team be appointed.

After the agreement is signed, the project manager will mobilize the project. This means the establishment of administrative routines, establishing a meeting schedule, and booking meetings.

Subsequently, the usual project methodology is followed, normally Agile or PMI's PMBOK project method.

Usually, the project manager will also have the account manager role for the customer in the time after project delivery. Moreover, around 10-20% of the project's budget is usually allotted to project management.

Medium-sized projects

By medium-sized projects, we mean projects that require between 120 and 500 hours of work from ProsessPilotene.

In these projects, we usually have a project manager who is often also an executive project resource.

We prefer for there to be a steering committe, but require the existence of a project team.

After the agreement is signed, the project manager will mobilize the project. This means the establishment of administrative routines, establishing a meeting schedule, and booking meetings.

Subsequently, the usual project methodology is followed, normally the Agile project methodology.

Usually, the project manager will also have the account manager role for the customer in the time after project delivery. Moreover, around 10% of the project's budget is usually allotted to project management.

Small projects

By small projects, we mean projects that have less than 120 working hours supplied by ProsessPilotene.

The small projects do not normally have their own project management, but task management. Such projects require fewer resources and normally follow the Agile project methodology.

The resource from ProsessPilotene who is involved in the delivery, is also operationally responsible for the deliveries. Our account manager is the project owner and the delivery-responsible manager.

In these projects, very little time is spent on project management.
